Fibroids are the most common tumors of the female reproductive system. They are also called as myomas, leiomyomas, and fibromas. These masses are formed by a mix of smooth muscles and connective tissues, which make it firm and compact.
The statistics show that 30% to 80% of women have fibroids in their childbearing age, even though many of them remain undiagnosed due to their small size.

Fibroids get noticed when they become enlarged and causes symptoms. The size of a fibroid can vary from the size of a pea to the size of a small grapefruit. The more it is big and numerous, the more it causes complications.

These non-malignant tumors can disturb your daily activities by causing heavy and prolonged menstruation, abnormal bleeding between menstrual periods, pelvic pain, back pain, frequent urination and pain during sexual intercourses.
The worst of all is this abnormal and heavy bleeding as it can lead a state of iron deficiency anemia, which may result in general weakness, lethargy, and many others.

The doctors even believe that fibroids can lead to infertility and pregnancy loss. This can occur due to many disturbances caused by these non-malignant tumors. Many clinical cases have shown that the fibroids in the submucosal layer of the uterus can prevent the implantation as well as the growth of the embryo.

Also, there are patients who were infertile due to an obstruction or distortion of the fallopian tubes caused by the fibroids, which were situated near to the fallopian tubes. The fibroids can also disturb the passage of the sperms from the cervix to the uterus if they are located in the cervix or near to it.

Moreover, when these fibroids rapidly grow into larger tumors, there is a possibility that the tumors may face a lack of blood supply in the center of it. A lack of blood supply can lead to the death of the fibroid tissues. The death of fibroid tissues will cause severe pain, that it will be necessary to remove the fibroids surgically.

It is always better to get diagnosed as early as possible, as the risk of developing fibroids increases during menopause due to the high estrogen levels. The doctors prefer to remove the entire uterus of the uterus with the ovaries when there are several fibroids or one single very large fibroid.
